Coffee and olive oil scrub
For this, it is important that our skin gets rid of all dead cells and keeps hydrated.
How can we get it? With coffee and olive oil scrub.
The coffee and olive oil scrub is full of benefits due to its composition: coffee and olive oil, since it is a 100% natural product, free of chemicals or parabens that, on many occasions, can damage our skin.
An exfoliant, regardless of its origin, serves to remove dead cells from the most superficial layer of the skin. With this, we get a more brightened skin and there is an increase in the production of collagen and elastin by improving circulation in the exfoliated area.
Coffee and extra virgin olive oil are two ingredients rich in antioxidants. Remember that antioxidants are natural compounds used more and more often in cosmetics in order to prevent premature aging of the skin.
Using coffee to exfoliate the skin of the body will serve to improve blood circulation, activate lymphatic drainage and, therefore, prevent cellulite. As stated by several experts, coffee helps remove excess fluid from connective tissue and that is why it is so effective against cellulite.
In addition, coffee helps to optimize the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the skin and reduces inflammation in the most sensitive areas, such as the eye contour. In addition, it stimulates the production of collagen, essential for the perfect concentration of fibroblasts (cells) of the skin and so that, consequently, it appears healthy and rejuvenated.
Extra virgin olive oil brings great benefits to the skin. With olive oil, we get a nourished and hydrated skin, giving it a young and bright appearance.
By applying the coffee and olive oil scrub twice a week, our skin will remain hydrated.
How to do it
We only need two ingredients to make the coffee and olive oil scrub: coffee and Vallejo extra virgin olive oil.
We recommend that you use already used ground or granulated coffee, so you can give it a double use. You can also make the scrub with coffee grounds.
It is important that the olive oil is extra virgin, since it is a completely natural product. With extra virgin olive oil, we will be able to take advantage of each and every one of its benefits.
The process of making the coffee and olive oil scrub is very simple. We will only have to mix the ingredients until we get a homogeneous mixture and apply it on the skin. Some people prefer to store it in the refrigerator before its application to enhance the benefits thanks to the cold.
Before applying the coffee and olive oil scrub olive on our skin, we must prepare the area.
If we are going to exfoliate the face, it is important that it is clean. With a little mixture in hand, we begin to spread the coffee and olive oil scrub on the face using circular movements and without pressing too much. The texture of the coffee will encourage the nutrients to enter the skin and achieve the desired goal.
It is important that we do not press, since if we do, we will probably damage our skin.
If we feel that the area begins to itch, it means that the circulation is being activated. However, with the coffee and olive oil scrub we should never feel pain. As soon as we notice the slightest pain or discomfort, we should remove it with plenty of water.
If you have sensitive skin, we recommend using a little of the mixture beforehand on your wrist or a small area of your face to check that the coffee and olive oil scrub will not harm your skin.
If we are going to exfoliate the body, we can do it while taking a shower and, at the same time, giving ourselves a relaxing massage. To enhance the effects of the coffee and olive oil scrub on your body, use a horsehair glove.
Whether we exfoliate the face or the rest of the body, it is important to moisturize the area after application.
